Tanzania Rescinds Decision to Suspend KQ Passenger Flights to Dar

Kenya has given Air Tanzania Company Limited the right to carry cargo between two foreign countries, starting from 16 January 2024 as earlier requested by Tanzania.

This happened after Tanzania had stopped Kenya Airways (KQ) from flying passengers to Dar es Salaam, due to a dispute over air traffic between the two nations.

Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) announced on Tuesday that it had lifted the suspension of KQ’s passenger flights with immediate effect.

“The aeronautical authorities of the United Republic of Tanzania have reversed their Decision of 15 January 2024 and have reinstated the permission for Kenya Airways to operate flights between Nairobi and Dar es Salaam with immediate effect,” TCAA said in a statement.

Earlier, Kenya Airways had said it was working with the civil aviation authorities and relevant government agencies of both countries to find a solution that would prevent any disruption of flights between Nairobi and Dar es Salaam.

Tanzania and Kenya agreed to quickly settle the recent issues caused by Tanzania’s restrictions on passenger flights.

The agreement was reached through diplomatic talks, with Tanzania’s Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation Minister, January Makamba, and his Kenyan counterpart, Musalia Mudavadi, affirming their willingness to resolve the matter promptly.
